Updated A Quaker Study

Since several friends were wanting to see my Quaker Study complete in its current state, here it is as of Monday morning. :)

Quite a few of the motifs are identical, but instead of becoming bored with them, I'm experiencing a nice sense of rhythm to the stitching.

Graceful Dinner Saturday evening was lots of fun with good friends and yummy food. One couple brought green salad, another sauteed fresh green beans and bread, and another made a lovely tiramisu for dessert. The side benefit of it all is that my main living areas were cleaned - and DH helped, lol! Really gotta do that more often.

Now, I must share this pic of Jaeger (dgs) that my Kirsten took. I just want to grab that boy and give him a squeeze! :D

QS is just so pretty! I really love the colors you're using.

And what a cutie Jaeger is (and quite a ham too!)

A Quaker Study is coming along quite nicely, Von. I'm glad that your dinner party went well, too. How is the family doing?

Oh, Quaker Study is so beautiful!
In Dutch we have the perfect work to describe the look on Jaeger's face, and for the life of me I can't think of an English equivalent. Naughty doesn't really cover it. He looks adorable in his naughtiness :o)
